The Mandalorian & The Darksaber

It started with The Mandalorian Season 2, episode 15, when the Mandalorian removed his helmet and had his face scanned.

In a CBR article it says the possibility of why Din Djarin’s facial scan through, however unlikely was because he harbors a secret.

There’s one last possibility, however unlikely it is, that must be considered. Perhaps the Empire’s database is secure, and somehow Din actually has a security clearance. This would go against everything we think we know about him, but perhaps he wasn’t always the devout Mandalorian he is now and had some sort of past involvement with the Empire. Maybe the Children of the Watch has something like a Rumspringa, where young adults can temporarily leave the traditional way of life, and Din spent time as a Stormtrooper? That would certainly be a major twist.

The Mandalorian: What’s the Deal With That Imperial Facial Scanner?

In the Book of Boba Fett, season 1 or The Mandalorian Season 2.5, Din Djarin learns to wield the Darksaber. But the Darksaber is heavy for him. The Armorer says he is fighting against the blade. Djarin has a mind block from using the Darksaber and he is not sure why.

In The Mandalorian Season 3, episode 18, Din Djarin was trapped by a large spider monster droid in his trap. Bo-Katan came to save him she was readily able to use the Darksaber to fight an defeat the droid. She does not have a mind block to fight with the Darksaber successfully, although she was given the saber from Sabine Wren who won it in ritual combat.

So why can’t Din Djarin wield the Darksaber like Bo-Katan? Why is it too heavy? He has a mind block. What is blocking his mind?

The theory here is: Din Djarin has a mind block that causes him to fight against the blade because he was in the Empire as some low level enforcer. He was a Mandalorian that favored the Empire over the Rebels.

And when the Empire collapsed, they mind wiped him with a mind flayer similar to Dr. Penn Pershing in The Mandalorian Season 3, Episode 19.

We hypothesize that once the Empire failed, Din found himself lost wandering in Mandalorian armor that he barely recognized as his, and was picked up by the Children of the Watch who rehabilitated former Imperial Mandalorians. There were strict rules to walk the way of the Mandalore. To make money, he became a bounty hunter and could make short order to finding his bounties.

However the mind flayer is not 100% wiping. Snippets of memories re-occur. We have not seen them yet. But he did something nasty that he will have to atone for and we might see it in the Mandalorian Season 3.

Whatever Din Djarin did or did not do, can he still be Mandalore or Mand’alor of the Mandalorians? The king of Mandalore.

Now, if you don’t believe us, fine. Move on. If you don’t understand, please ask questions. But if you agree, let’s get to know one another.
